the gun laws. they are going to find a gun or find another weapon. >> i've heard of some stretches, in my time. but stretching from javon belcher and the shooting in syria and chemical weapons seems like a bit of a stretch. the implications of that is that every american should have access to chemical weapons and nuclear weapons. it will result in weapons ownership. look at europe. look at japan. look at the rest of the world. we are way, way out there. we have the highest murder rate in the world. it hasn't protected us. it has resulted in arguments that should have a consequence of maybe a slap in the face, resulting in a bullet through the heart. it results in a double-murder in this case, a murder/suicide. guns don't protect. they cause suicide. >> let me bring in -- >> they cause suicide? >> i can promise, i'll get back to you, carol. here is what they say to me. i've had it all. but trying to get a debate going. i've been on two years on cnn. in that time, there's been a series of gun rages. each time it is the same debate and nothing gets done about it. 300 million guns and you hav
was decidedly unamused. >> obviously, the vice, what the australian broadcaster did may well have broken the law. on the other hand, they've apologized for it. so we're going to have a long and careful think about what, if anything, we do. >> reporter: the station said it was the easier prank call it had ever made. >> when is a good time to come and visit her? because i'm the queen, so i need to get down there. >> i would suggest anytime after 9:00 would be suitable. >> reporter: easy for a nurse, what she's supposed to do when someone calls up saying it's the queen, ask for proof. what started as a story here about a difficult beginning to a pregnancy became more than that. it became one of a patient confidentiality and about humor, and about bad accents. >> thank you, mark phillips. >>> in egypt this morning army tanks are protecting the presidential papplace as the president prepares to speak to the nation tonight. at least five people killed overnight and hundreds wounded as opponents fought out the palace gates. more demonstrations are planned today in cairo. holly williams is there. holly,
that marijuana goes legal in another state but the new law raises question for police and for drivers, how high they are asking is too high to drive? martha: that is a whole new world, right? from making laws to breaking the law, why a state senator is now behind bars. what it could mean for his high profile seat that he's running for. >> i don't know if he knew he had the gun on him. >> he said he forgot about it, it was in his bag. >> well that goes around a lot, a lot of people say they forget things. i'm just totally shocked.

obama do that. i think people with weak stomachs should not watch laws or sausage being made as an adage. i hope we do see some progress because i think both speaker baner and the president agree we cannot go off the fiscal cliff. our economy cannot sustain that and it cannot happen. >> when is the sausage done? >> the sausage will get done a couple of hours before christmas eve. they will keep them in the house until very late. they will put something through at the very end. it won't be pretty. it won't be a long-term solution, and my guess is they will put a bandaid long enough to get us to about february where we can have the same discussion when we hit the debt limit ceiling in february and do it all over again. >> debbie, what is your prediction on this? >> i think chip and i agree it will be the end of the year. i have told congressional spouses they should plan on their spouses working between christmas and new year's, and that's what the american people want. they are elected to govern and that's part of the job. >> do you agree with chip that it will be a temporary fix? >> i do
to be considering. washington state put into effect two news laws today with major national significance. as of midnight, possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana is now legal in washington state, following the approval of a state ballot initiative last month. in enacting the measure, washington is the first state to decriminalize recreational marijuana use and the first to do so anywhere by popular vote. meanwhile, same-sex marriage is also now legal in washington as of midnight after also having been approved by voters on election day one month ago. those are some of the headlines. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting from doha, qatar, but we begin in egypt, where six people are dead and hundreds are wounded following overnight clashes between opponents and supporters of mohamed mursi. tanks were deployed over the presidential palace today amidst ongoing scuffles. the violence marks the culmination of two weeks of protest after president morsi issued a decree granting themselves sweeping and unchecked powers last month
on sharia law. it is by its very nature anti-west, anti-democratic, anti-liberal and anti-peace. it's interests are opposite to ours. this is islamism, it is the opposite of democracy. democracy -- people are the source of legitimacy. periodic elections to choose one's representatives. the idea that the political minority can eventually become the majority. respect for certain rights. protection for the rights of religious and ethnic minorities. protection that goes beyond tolerance and of course the rule of law, the respect for a judiciary that is independent. today's debate is simple. we aren't asking whether they can be good muslims and good democrats, the answer to that is yes. but can islammists be democrat. can advocates of the ideology of fundamentalism lead their countries to democracy? the answer is an obvious no. our answer is grounded inexperience and fact. their answer is grounded in hope and assertion. we have experiences, iran, gaza, sudan, lebanon, turkey, in none of these countries have the attributes of democracy occurred when islammists were in power. rights are re
that option open. so while it's technically not illegal under international law for him to have this capability these are very, very dangerous products. gregg: speaking of illegal, people who commit crimes against humanity, war crimes are held in the dock at the international criminal court in the hague. there is talk now that bashar al-assad may try to seek asylum. should the u.s. position be no, you must be held to account for what you've done, or let's just get him out of here? >> well, i don't think the international criminal court is a legitimate organization under any circumstances, but in this case i think it posts the hard question whether this determination to prosecute somebody doesn't cause more death and destruction than giving somebody like bashar al-assad immunity, getting them out of the country and trying to end this conflict. the problem is it's hard to see who can give him that real grant, maybe the russians and that's why there is reporting that they are talking to bashar al-assad. but one reason i think he and other dictators tend to stay to the end is they d
that the electoral law allows for them residing outside of the country to vote. working in collaboration with organizations such as the office of the high commissioner for the refugees that speaks with displaced persons and refugees the government could take steps to allow the significant population of refugees in the neighboring countries and the internally displaced persons to hold the region's. at the same time, as logistically challenging as it may be, holding elections in the major cities and in the northern regions would be this strong guest impossible of mali's sovereignty or territory and steps of rebuilding a democracy. the transition government is government plans and actions to the public and the crisis of legitimacy. the international community needs to harmonize its approach toward the pursuit of the polls that could lead to the legitimately elected government and military actions to detect the north. the contradictory public that take the military option off the table in the short and medium-term may only serve to emboldened the extra hauling them time to reinforce their pr
the rates? >> you can do it mathematically. it works. you can write laws that do it. the question you have to say to yourself, do you want to start eliminating charitable deductions for state and local taxes, for charitable, for health care, even, for retirement funds? in other words, do you really want to turn people's behavior kind of inside-out almost overnight by changing the way taxes work so quickly? >> mark, you're as plugged in as anybody in washington right now. are these guys talking to each other in a real, meaningful way? i know they put out the information that the president talked to john boehner yet, but are there real behind-the-scenes intense negotiations as we're now four weeks away from this thing? >> in talking to people so both sides yesterday, they had the identical message which is the other side isn't ready to listen yet, so we've just got to wait. that's obviously not a great environment to move things along. the optimists on both sides think we're going to get a deal, not by christmas, but by new year's. if you ask people, what's the next step? what gets things mo
know, howard baker was everett dirkson's son-in-law. and during the run up to the civil rights bill, howard is sitting up in dirkson's office, phone rings, dirkson picks it up, says -- and all howard can say is him saying, mr. president, i just can't come down tonight, i was there last night. i was there the night before, i just got to go home. hangs up. 20 minutes passed, and he hears beagles barking in the hallway outside his office. and lbj walks in with his dogs. so because he wouldn't come down to see him, johnson called a car, got in and came up to just force a conversation with dirkson. >> and lyndon johnson -- >> and we got a bill. >> and by the way, l lyndon johnson. he's so detached and disconnected from the hill, he would call, mark haleprin, famously, subcommittee chairman in the house. and say, hey, i hear the mark-up didn't go very well today. do you need any help? what can i do? do you need me to call anybody? how can i push this along? again, we're not heaping all the blame on the president. let me underline again. >> yeah. >> john boehner's counter offer was patheti
state. but how will law enforcement determine if people are too high to drive? those satellite images probably are not going to be useful in this sort of situation. william la jeunesse is live in los angeles with more. william? >> reporter: well, jenna, 33% of those killed in auto accidents have some drug other than alcohol in their system, so the fear was legalizing pot would only make that worse. pot advocates say smokers know when they're too high to drive. well, washington state taking no chances, imposing a strict limit on the amount of pot drivers can have in their system. >> do you want to know why i pulled you over? littering and smoking the reefer. >> reporter: driving while high. more drivers are toking up. yet studies like this one in europe show too much marijuana affects coordination and judgment. >> one of the first and most important being a reduced ability to divide one's attention. >> reporter: advocates argue pot is far less debilitating than alcohol, yet a new canadian study says those who drive within three hours of smoking pot are twice as likely to cause a crash.
